Country Stars Give the Shirts Off Their Backs To Help Homeless In Nashville

Country Music Stars donate autographed items to eBay online auction with all proceeds going to The Salvation Army Nashville Area Command’s Angel Tree holiday assistance program.

Among the stars donating items are: Reba McEntire, Blake Shelton, Dustin Lynch, Naomi Judd, Jessica Andrews, Charlie Worsham, Keith Anderson, Parmalee, Marcel, Frankie Ballard, Jana Kramer, Craig Campbell and Rachel Kice.

“The original idea was to have artists donate an autographed shirt they wore on a television or live appearance,” says songwriting community organizer, Barbara Cloyd, “but obviously we’re happy to have any autographed item that will bring in money for the Angel Tree program. You can get these awesome autographed items from your favorite country stars like Blake Shelton and Reba to give as holiday presents, and help a great cause at the same time.”

The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program has been in operation for over 30 years and expects to serve more than 18,000 children and seniors in the Middle Tennessee area alone this year.

Everyone asks “what exactly do you do Jessica?” What some of my family members say, “she tweets for a living” is my favorite, but really the title that puts food on the table is “Social Media Influencer,” the definition sounds simple, someone who influences others through social media, but I consider myself a Citizen Journalist broadcasting and entertaining with news, thoughts, opinions, delivering information in my own unique way. Famous for my ‘sass wit and straight from the hip’ style I’ve always been called a “Social Media Pioneer” in the music industry. I’m also an On-Air/Online Broadcasting Host and Personality, Digital Media Strategist, Country and Music Blogger/Journalist as well as a Nationally recognized Speaker and Founder of Country Music Chat, News and Views Entertainment Website My favorite accomplishment is starting the largest Country Music Hashtag community in the world Country Music’s #CMChat. It all started with a hunch...back in the early 2000’s I would dial up the internet via AOL and join chat rooms whilst watching my favorite programs on TV. Loved watching Reality Shows with my Mom in Tucson, and blowing her mind with how I always knew who was going home on the Bachelor or Big Brother. Don’t think she ever caught on that I was talking to people via computer on the East Coast, where it had already aired. (We didn’t have the uber-spoiler Twitter or Facebook to ruin results and awards shows for us yet.) I’ve been taking over the internet, one tweet at a time and have accumulated over 3 Million followers/friends/fans across all my Social Media networks. Over the years I’ve been consistently ranked as an influential online personality and even named as a Forbes Top 50 Social Media Power Influencer. I was the first person Merle Haggard followed when he got on Twitter and spent the day with Garth Brooks at Twitter and Facebook when joined the social media world.
